Really Beautiful

I love this trail a lot and there are so many great photo ops.

Big, easy loop

I've walked and jogged this loop many times. It's a very popular spot for walkers and runners. If you're looking for solitude, this is not the place. However, it can be pretty empty and quiet on weekdays in the middle of the day. On weekends it's VERY busy, and there is a fee to get into the park to reach the lake. The trail sticks right beside the lake all the way around so you will always have a view of it. There's kayaks and canoes to rent, park benches to relax on, and many fishing spots. It's not a challenging hike, but can be a challenging run with the steep up's & downs.
